New review — not sure who this is from, but I’m glad he liked the book!
This book offers a thrilling, tightly paced crime novel with finely drawn characters and a twisting plot. The moral dilemma of how to resolve the crimes without crossing ethical boundaries adds tension to the story. The action moves, there’s good pacing, and a well-drawn plot in this police procedural. Peripheral characters like Dolores and Jason make amusing side threads to the main story. All characters are vividly drawn and colorful, as is the exotic world of drugs, corruption, murder and politics. The romance adds a grace note where the reader takes a breath. Well done and worth the read.
